30 feet of Concrete topped with 3 feet of electrified concertina wire... should work to keep out even the most aggressive illegal aliens...  by the way it should not cost 25 Billion to build 1,954 miles of border wall.  US Interstate highways ... the production of a 4-lane interstate highway, costs between $4 and $6 million to build in rural or suburban areas... with property expenses, overpasses, access, and rest areas. (see below for how these costs were figured) Interstate high ways with  lanes of reinforced concrete take more materials than a single 12 inch 30' wall to build... so the wall should be cheaper.

Figure the costs for 2000 miles of concrete wall equivalent to a 4 lane interstate highway using 6 million per mile and you have 12 Billion not 25 Billion... We are being lied to again... Either someone is out of their mind or wants to make the wall appear to expensive to build.  However,  Using the 6 million per mile figure for building Interstate Highways in urban areas, a 30' concrete wall, along the entire border, with all of its access roads, maintenance and border patrol facilities should not cost more than 12 Billion... less than half of what others are quoting.

Come on Mr. Nelson, I sent you a link, let have a normal talk for a change??????

No Political Punts.......

Hank, you and Tif and the rest of our members, opt out to  8 to 6 to 1

And let Mr. Nelson be, that kind of information was over the top, opt it now.

Try speaking in English Henry... what the H are you trying to say? I thought we were in agreement... the Wall should be built ... it is effective as a deterrent and the costs are not prohibitive... they are over stated by more than double.

Pres. Trump also questioned the Establishments cost estimates... the estimates I made are based on similar types of construction... reinforced concrete slabs built over a wide range of terrain types.  12 Billion is more than enough to build a new 30 foot wall with all its accouterments. 

Its none of your business man, the comment was directed to us, not you Mr. Nelson.

 English one on one.

Well Hank... last I checked this is a public forum and the 1st Amendment is still functioning, albeit admittedly somewhat marginally.

Rude, abrasive, and unintelligible posts, add nothing to the discussion... 

 I guess Hank was rude, but my comment was for them, we have work to do, and I am not in the position to explain what my orders are to them.

It is not personal, Mr. Nelson, but if I explain in detail what I stated, then the whole world would know my intention.

Please build the Border Wall NOW!! No more evil / satanic / demonic muslims or their muslim brotherhood members or illegal immigrants from muslim brotherhood countries, or illegal drugs!!

United We Stand with Israel-Yisrael and our Judeo-Christian Nation United States of America, Divided We FALL!!

Blessed is a Nation who's our ONE TRUE GOD THE FATHER who art in Heaven Above and HIS SON Jesus-Yeshua Christ and HIS HOLY GHOST ( HOLY SPIRIT ), these THREE are ONE!!

Our ONE True GOD'S LOVE is ETERNAL THROUGH HIS SON Jesus-Yeshua Christ for Today and Everyday Forevermore Everyone!!

Love Always and Shalom ( Peace ) Everyone, YSIC \o/

Kristi Ann

Yep, build the wall !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So America don't turn into a shi*hole

ALERT ALERT

 After Years Of Stagnation Under Obama 
Household Income Hits 50-Year High

Image result for money

Former President Barack Obama got plenty of praise for shepherding us through the recovery from the 2008 economic crisis. However, those on Main Street, USA, knew the truth — things weren’t any better than they had been when George W. Bush left office.

As The Weekly Standard reported in 2016, median household income when Obama came into office in 2009 was $56,731. In 2015, six years into his presidency, that number was $56,516 — a decrease of just over $200.

By the time he left office, it’s true that media household income had risen to $59,471 — but that was essentially the same as it had been in December, 2007, at the end of the “Great Recession” and just a few weeks before Obama took office, when it was $59,549.

So, how’s The Donald doing?

Well, as Investor’s Business Daily reported, a new study from Sentier Research found that the median household income in April was $61,483 — a 50-year high.

That’s up from $59,471 in January of 2017.

The firm tracks income using census data and adjusts for inflation — so even a slightly weaker dollar doesn’t account for the increase.

Bad News For Dems: Household Income Hits All-Time High Under Trump … And He's Getting Credit For It!!! 

Household Income Hits All-Time High Under Trump, And He's Getting Credit For It

A new report shows that the median household income has climbed 3% since President Trump took office. It's another sign of a strong economy, and at least one poll shows the public credits Trump for...

That’s great news for the country, but maybe not the best news for Democrats.

“This is just another indication that the economy has notably strengthened under Trump. And polls show that the public’s mood has brightened considerably as a result,” Investor’s Business Daily reported.

“The latest IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index is 53.6. This index has been in positive territory (anything over 50 is optimistic) since Trump took office. The Quality of Life Index, meanwhile, hit a 14-year high in May and the Financial Stress Index is at an all-time low.”

That economic data is followed by a lot of polls that seem to show that the “blue wave” expected in the November midterms breaking and rolling back into the sea.

A new Reuters poll found that a generic Republican would beat a generic Democrat by six points. Back in March, the Democrats were up by nine points. A CBS poll found that Democrats had a two-point advantage on the generic ballot — hardly “wave” material.

The CBS poll also found that 68 percent of Americans believed Trump’s policies deserved at least some of the credit for the economic situation, with 35 percent saying he deserved a “great deal” of the credit.

Sixty-four percent of respondents rated the economy as “somewhat good” or “very good.” In a CNN poll, 57 percent of voters said that “things are going well in the U.S.” In February, that was 49 percent.

Perhaps the most important figure: Under Obama, when Gallup asked whether it was a good time to find “a quality job in the U.S.,” the highest number that administration ever achieved was 45 percent. Under Trump, that number is 67 percent — the highest number in the 17-year history of the poll.

While Trump’s personal numbers haven’t seen the same bounce, they’re still up — and that’s the important thing. Thanks to the relentless campaign of personal attacks against him, Trump’s stated approval rating has always been a lot lower than it probably is.

Don’t believe me? Just ask Hillary Clinton. For all of the personal barbs and attacks, 2016 ultimately came down to the economy. So will 2018 — and that’s not good news for the Democrats.
